McConville son: 'We still think we are under threat'

The son of Jean McConville, who was abducted and murdered by the IRA at the height of The Troubles, has said the rest of the family wants to keep "the information they have" about their mother's disappearance "to themselves".

Michael McConville told Good Morning Britain the majority of the family feared they or "our children" would be attacked by the IRA if they gave information about who dragged their mother, Jean, away from the family home in 1972.

His sister, Helen McKendry, has said she will "happily" give police the names of those involved in her mother's disappearance.
